Milton Bradley to the Mariners: Not gonna happen

Old buddy Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun Times caused a bit of a stir with his Tweet that the Cubs are on the verge of trading Milton Bradley to “a surprise American League team.”

That ruled out the Rays and the Rangers, the two teams to whom Bradley has been linked, and opened up speculation of a Bradley-for-Carlos Silva swap — an “our expensive problem for your expensive problem” proposition.

Nice thought, but an impeccable source told me the Mariners don’t have interest in Bradley and his baggage.
